Cajun Catfish

This is a very tasty recipe featuring multiple layers of Cajun flavor. One of our favorites for catfish fillets, but walleye or pike are great substitutes.


  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/4 cup chopped mild green
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 catfish fillets


Mix paprika, cayenne, pepper, black pepper, onion powder, thyme, basil, garlic powder, and oregano together.

 Over medium heat, melt butter and oil and use a basting brush to spread the mixture on both sides of the fillets before coating each side with the season mix.

In a hot iron skillet, drizzle the butter-oil mix on one side of a fillet and lay it butter side down. Cook for about 5 minutes before duplicating the process on the other side of the fillet.
